The Algerian Party for Democracy and Socialism (Parti Algérien pour la Démocratie et le Socialisme) is a communist political party in Algeria. When in 1993, during the Algerian Civil War, Ettehadi was realigned as a democratic movement resisting Islamism,[1] the orthodox communist wing split apart under the leadership of Abdelhamid Benzine to retain its communist legacy.[1]
